Key Features to Grow Your Business with Google Cloud Platform

 

Cloud adoption is taking over multiple regions and industries and it is transforming the way IT is built. Cloud computing has made hosting infrastructure elastic and it is an advantage for the end users as well, to start with, cost savings, scalability, security and service upgrades, and disaster recoveries. Companies figured out that after adopting cloud computing, they become more agile in the competitive marketplace. 

Businesses now don’t have to spend time and money maintaining and buying their own servers, rather, they can use the off-the-shelf professional infrastructure given by cloud service providers.Google’s strength lies in its expertise in developing and managing cloud-native applications, analytics and machine learning as well as fast virtual machine provisioning and simpler billing.


As a leader in the cloud space, Google Cloud is now earning $1 billion per quarter, according to CEO Sundar Pichai. As a successful option for a cloud platform, could GCP be right for your enterprise? Let’s take a look at a few key features on Google Cloud that make it a strong choice for enterprises.

Key Feature #1: Fault Tolerance and High Availability Having a strong global footprint is an important quality in a cloud platform. Google cloud certainly isn’t lacking in this aspect. With 18 regions, 55 zones, and 134 network edge locations spread over more than 200 countries, GCP ensures that applications are not only easily and consistently available, but highly resilient to challenges. GCP’s service and product availability is also designed to help with application deployment considerations.Google is one of the few large technology companies that has the computing power to provide data mining and query services that vertical industries with huge Big Data needs can benefit from.

Key Feature #2: Scalability and Elasticity

To help maintain performance and availability, Google Cloud has built-in services to auto scale applications and equally distribute application load. Managed Instance Groups, something GCP uses to contain identical instances that you can manage as a single entity in a single zone, allow users to automatically add or delete instances and define a policy that scales up and down the numbers of instances based upon measured load and target utilization. By providing a variety of load balances to distribute different types of loads, GCP is more scalable and elastic.Google has room for improvement in a few areas though, such as user management to provide organizations more granular and customizable access control; the need for a marketplace to license third party software and the need to increase its efforts in sales, marketing, globalization and partnerships.

Key Feature #3: Disaster Recovery

A major cost saving feature that makes GCP a prime candidate for enterprises looking to begin their cloud journey is their ability to reduce the costs. More specifically, costs that are associated with both recovery point objectives and recovery time objectives compared to on-premises solutions. GCP accounts for an application’s SLA requirements by possessing a strong global network, a redundant point of presence across the globe, a scalable service infrastructure, a highly secure network, and is privacy compliant in most aspects. These are just a couple of the key features that make Google Cloud Platform one of the top choices for enterprises looking to migrate their business to a cloud set of solutions.

Zoom’s Work Transformation Summit on Jan. 19: Fresh Approaches for Moving Forward

These past two years have undoubtedly reshaped work. More specifically, these past two years — shuffling between remote, in-person, and hybrid work scenarios — reshaped what employees expect out of their jobs, how they want to work, and what the office means to them.  Organizations are challenged with making big decisions to meet those expectations, and those decisions will dramatically alter how they hire, manage their facilities, buy technology, and maintain productivity. Simply adjusting policies and retooling previous work models won’t do. It takes a comprehensive reimagining. To help organizations navigate this next phase of work, Zoom is hosting our  Work Transformation Summit  on Jan. 19, a free, half-day virtual event designed to provide you and your organization with meaningful strategies, creative approaches, and innovative solutions for redefining work.  Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear from peers and industry experts on the importance of embracing technolo
